Chris Coryell is the CEO of Coryell Roofing and Construction, Inc. (Coryell Roofing), a company he founded with his wife, Theresa, in April of 2011. As CEO, Chris is the public face of Coryell Roofing–he determines the vision and corporate culture of the company and manages the overall operations and resources. Chris spent a short time studying at Oklahoma Christian University but quickly decided that the workplace would be his classroom.
He went to work for Coca-Cola, one of the most powerful and recognized brands in the world. There, he learned marketing and sales skills. He then worked for Digital Projections, a Texas Instruments company based out of Kennesaw, GA, where he learned to be innovative. Later, working as a sales rep for Duro-Lite Heat Transfer Products, Chris learned how to overcome being unknown. Through the years, his entrepreneurial spirit has led him to establish several other successful businesses before Coryell Roofing. Chris continues to self-educate by reading books written by visionaries such as Jeff Bezos and subscribing to podcasts and social media channels that provide motivation and insight into thought and growth. Furthermore, he continually strives to educate and motivate his teams.
The ideology that guides Chris as CEO of Coryell Roofing is “to serve others.” He quotes his papa, Ted Hardwick: “If you help others get what they want, you will get what you need.” One of the ways Chris serves Coryell Roofing teammates is by creating a culture of family where team members care for each other, believe in each other, and celebrate each other’s victories and accomplishments.
When not in his role as CEO of Coryell Roofing, Chris might be playing the guitar and singing by the fire, working on a chapter in the motivational book he is writing, or golfing with his three sons. But what this self-educated, hard-driving businessman most likes to do is spend time with his beautiful wife, best friend, and co-founder of Coryell Roofing, Theresa.
